Who Can Apply: The fund was established in 1982 by Leila Morris in loving memory of her late husband who practiced dentistry in Bismarck for many years. When establishing the scholarship, Mrs. Morris indicated she wanted to help young people interested in dentistry to fulfill their educational aspirations and that her late husband would have wanted the same.
1. First priority is for students from the Bismarck-Mandan area who are third or fourth year students of dentistry.
2. If there are no applicants from the Bismarck-Mandan area in any given year, the scholarship may be awarded to a student of dentistry from anywhere in North Dakota.
3. If according to the previous two preferences there are no eligible applicants, the scholarship may be awarded to a student of medicine from the Bismarck-Mandan area or if no applicants from the Bismarck-Mandan area, then statewide.
